The History of the Stanley Cup
The Stanley Cup (French: La Coupe Stanley) is the championship trophy of the National Hockey League (NHL), the major professional ice hockey league in Canada and the United States . Commonly referred to as simply "The Cup", "The Holy Grail" or facetiously (chiefly by sportswriters) as "Lord Stanley's Mug", it is at the center of several legends and superstitions. Unlike the trophies awarded by the other three major professional sports leagues of North America , a new Stanley Cup is not made annually; unless the Cup winners repeat as champions in the following season, they only keep it until the new champion is crowned. It is also the only trophy in professional sports that has the name of the winning players, coaches, management, and club staff engraved upon it.
The hardest pro sports trophy to win also leads the pack in history. Now that we have a better idea of where the Stanley Cup is going this season, it's time to see where it has been.
1. Purchased by Frederick Arthur, Lord Stanley of Preston, 16th Earl of Derby, for 10 guineas (equivalent to $48.67) in 1892.
2. Initially called the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, its first winner, in 1893, was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association team.
3. The original trophy was just the top bowl, measuring 7 1/2 inches high and 11 1/2 inches across. The bottom section was added in 1909.
4. The first team to have its players' names engraved on the trophy was the Montreal Wanderers, in 1907.
5. In 1924, the Canadiens added a silver band between the two rings. All teams had their players' names engraved from this point forward.
6. A year later, the Victoria Cougars added the angled band between the bowl and the first ring.
7. Each winner followed suit, adding different-sized bands to the trophy through 1929. For 10 years after that, silver bands of identical circumference were applied.
8. The Stanley Cup became an NHL-controlled trophy with the 1927 winner. Before that, teams from various leagues vied for its ownership.
9. As sections were added, the trophy developed so that its base had the same circumference as the first ring, giving it a cylindrical or tube-like appearance. By the mid-1940s, the Cup had grown to almost 3 feet high.
10 The Cup changed in 1948 when it was constructed as two, separable pieces, the base being much wider. Teams that didn't have their names engraved (winners from 1908, 1910, 1911 and 1918-23) were added to the shoulder of the Cup.
11. In 1958, the Stanley Cup became the one-piece, barrel-like trophy it is today.
12. The original collar -- the portion between the rings and the barrel -- was replaced in 1963. The original bowl was replaced in 1969.
13. When the Penguins filled the last spot on the bottom band, in 1990-91, the top band -- listing winners from 1928 to 1940 -- was removed and the remaining bands moved up. The next band is set to be added in 2005.
14. A replica of the Cup was built in 1993. The replica, and copies of the rest of the NHL's storied trophy collection, is on permanent display at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The real Cup, in all its renovated glory, travels to promotional gigs and its annual hoisting.
15. The Cup measures 35 1/4 inches tall and 18 inches across the base and weighs 32 pounds. -- Paul Grant; Source: Total Stanley Cup
